My website has been similar to a child. A pain in the freaking ass. I wish I could tell you what the issues are, but I’m an idiot. And when it comes to computers or computer code or really, technology, I’m at a loss. I literally have no clue how to fix things.

And not having my website makes me feel lost. I love this thing. And who am I suppose to spill personal stories to if I can’t post every day? Oh that’s right…my friends…the people I coach…the homeless guys outside of our gym. Really, I have a lot of options, but none seem as great as the world wide web. Blabbing to unknown subjects is so freeing. Seriously. I think that’s why people have therapists.

Anywho, have you heard of the Sous Vide cooker? Well, they’re pricey so I never thought I would get to use one. And when I was given the opportunity to try one out for a cooking competition, I wasn’t sure I would actually even like using it. Specifically because I’m an incredibly lazy cook, so having to vacuum seal my meat before cooking it seems like a big chunk of wasteful time. Well, I was wrong. Because the meat turned out absolutely amazing. It also helped that I was using filet mignon from TX Bar Organics because they have some awesome quality meats. Ok, now I sound like a salesman. Anywho, even though the Sous Vide is incredibly expensive, it’s well worth it if you like perfectly cooked meats every time. You can’t screw it up, which is awesome.
